GetCategorySpecifics returns nothing!

I'm trying to update our system to take into account Ebays Item Specifics instead of Attributes, as our customers are having problems listing items in the Clothing category due to Item Specific errors. An example of a request I'm doing to get a categories specifics is: ..... 42025 Ebay returns: 2011-12-15T09:34:01.731Z Success 748 E748_INTL_BUNDLED_14113017_R1 I KNOW there are specifics for this category, as VerifyItemRequest returns errors if they are not included! Any ideas how I get a list of item specifics for a particular category?! Thanks!

Seems I can't edit my previous post. The examples have broken due to their <tags>.

 

An example of a request I'm doing to get a categories specifics is:

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<GetCategorySpecificsRequest xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">
<RequesterCredentials>
<eBayAuthToken>.....</eBayAuthToken>
</RequesterCredentials>
<CategoryID>42025</CategoryID>
</GetCategorySpecificsRequest>

 

Ebay returns:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<GetCategorySpecificsResponse xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">
<Timestamp>2011-12-15T09:34:01.731Z</Timestamp>
<Ack>Success</Ack>
<Version>748</Version>
<Build>E748_INTL_BUNDLED_14113017_R1</Build>
</GetCategorySpecificsResponse>

 

 

Any ideas?!

Any ideas anyone?

 

I still can't get GetCategorySpecifics to return anything useful.

 

I'm using Ebay UK if that makes a difference?

Hi,

I am not able to reproduce your issue.  I took your exact request and was able to get a correct response.

Here are a few things you should check:

1.  Make sure you are using SiteID 3 (UK)

2.  Try adding this field into your request, <DetailLevel>ReturnAll</DetailLevel>

3.  Make sure you are using the correct endpoint, https://api.ebay.com/wsapi

Here is our tool that will make calls for you and help construct calls, https://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/build-test/test-tool/default.aspx.

If you are still having issues after this, I suggest opening a support ticket, http://developer.ebay.com/support/developersupport/

 

Best Regards,
eBay Developer Support

I was having this issue and was able to resolve it by updating my compatibilityLevel in my configuration to one of the newer versions and it now works like a charm.
